    Hi all.

    Im soon to be on the look out for an A4 Cab (B7), and I really like the darker red (Fire Red I think).

    Im not sure if its some pics that makes some look darker than others or is there a few Reds??

    Thanks Johnny

    your colour code will be in the boot, or in the front of your service book. E.g LZ3M is misano red. Which is the same colour as mine.

    Just flicking thru the same B7 A4 Spec guide as per the other thread.. i think i can help here as well.

    Briliant Red (C8) is listed in the Standard Colours section
    Garnet Red - pearl effect (9C), is listed in the Optional colours section
    Misano Red - pearl effect (N9) is in the S Line Special Edition additional colours section (albeit there is a note saying "Also available on other models at Audi Exclusive paint price")

    hope this helps too :beerchug:

    FYI Garnet Red......officially the worst colour to match if you have a prang I have been told! Hides the rust extremely well though!:blink:

    Wouldn't worry about it too much Andy....My lot managed a reasonable job and they are not the best. A good competent paintshop should be able to match it up well....depending where the touches are on the bus. Paint is so expensive up here..and I have a lot of rust...it's just not worth the expense of getting the work done.....
    Cheers

    Should be fine Andy, its only a bad match due to poor coverage, but all metallic reds are the same. If they blend in either direction you shouldn't have a problem. Edge to edge with any metallic or pearl it even solid colour these days is a gamble. Mite look fine in natural light, but go to the petrol station one night and the fluorescent light will show you how wrong it is. It's worth paying abit more for blends :)
